Calling all card makers.... :)

Hi everyone ..... 

First and foremost I want to thank everyone for the love and support on my Bella Blvd. post.... it is truly appreciated .... there are only a handful of manufacturers out there that I am willing to try out for their DT calls.... and Bella Blvd. is one of them -- but no worries -- I will try again and again and again if I have to :)

Today I want to share some cards I made for a handmade card call that June is having ... her BFF's son-in-law was killed in Libya on 09/11 and June wants to send his family sympathy cards and needs our help in getting this done....

You can see all the details on June's post HERE!!!
 


I used some of my paper and flower stash on these ... plus SRM stickers!!!



Next I have a FUN card to share with you... my friend Matt at work is going to his Mom's surprise birthday party later this month... and he asked me to make her a card.... welllllllllll his Mom LOVES "Fifty Shades of Grey" ... and her name is Mary... so I thought I would make her a card based on the cover of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" book -- *wink* -- 

I grabbed a silver/gray ribbon from my stash ... asked Brookie to loan me her forearm (so I could make a tie knot... lol!!) and waaaa laaaa --- I made a GRAY TIE for this!!!!!! :)

And I just read that Paper Issues is having a "Grey" challenge -- so I am entering this card over there :) 




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  20. Your sympathy cards are simple and pretty, and I love the 50 Shades card. I admit I have put off reading this book myself, but have just now broken down and given in lol. What's the harm I guess.

    Have a great week!
